Mustard Seed Creations – 2019
Meet the Twins. They’re fun, five, and full of sugar.
Note to self- when babysitting your friend’s twins, do not – I repeat- do not. For. All. That. Is. Holy….do an impromptu photo session after they’ve just consumed what had to have been the world’s largest chocolate chip cookie.
It started out as a noble idea. You see, with Mother’s Day less than a month away I thought I’d be the coolest friend ever and surprise my dear, sweet friend with a gift.
Yeah, I know. In my defense, I’m pretty sure my siblings dropped me on my head a time or two when I was little……
Here’s a few of the photos. It was in the midst of this sugar induced shoot that my flawless plan became flawed. I forgot one very important fact about five year olds.
They can not keep secrets. Ever.
Me: camera in hand “Remember, don’t tell mom. It’s a secret”
Twin 1: squeals with excitement….or sugar high spiral “I can’t wait to tell her!!”
Twin 2: equally sugared up “Yes!!! We’re going to tell her!”
So….I beat them to it. Once I got them calm enough to sit still I went to work and here below you’ll find a few of the calmer ones. And if you’re wondering “Summer is constantly doing black and white photos…why?” Well, because I like them. And I hope you will too. Especially the last one. That’s a favorite of mine and their mom’s.
